Apparantly you don't understand the intangibles that go along with that trophy... pride, self esteem, standing in the coonhunting community, power... just to name a few. In that other KC there is only money involved. And you can always win more money the next night.
I disagree that the the other kc that its just the money. In my opinion Jarvis Umphers was one of the best innovators in the coon hunting world, he coupled the money with the RECOGNITION! When it all started wvery little dinky hunt in the country were sending pics in and they were posted in the magazine, paper back then. Peopl like to see themselves and there hounds recognized in the book, for every one else to see. That is as important as any trophy or finacial prize you can have! Just look at social media and all the people that jist post pics of themselves for the heck of it. I believe today that the recognitions/pics in the magazines play a huge part and for the big winners the articles as well.
